The AAS Affiliates Programme seeks early and mid-career scientists who demonstrate excellence in their development and application of science in Africa. These individuals become Affiliates of The AAS for a period of five years during which they receive individualised professional development support and join a wider community of science leaders on the African continent. Please note that the process now allows individuals to apply directly instead of being nominated by senior scientists.

During the European Research Council meeting at The AAS on 20 March 2019, it emerged that applying to grants from the EU requires dedicating several months to complete the application process. Kindly read through what is required and see if this is something your institutions could pursue.

You will need to form a partnership comprising of 4-6 African universities and 1 EU technical partner. You have the benefit of finding Africa collaborators from among the Fellows and Affiliates.
